Our Minds May Be Limited In Its Vision, But It Is Limitless In Its Ability To Amaze

Oftentimes, we envy the happy lives of others, simply because we focus only on that part of their lives and neglect the rest.

A human's optical field of view is approximately 120 degrees wide. As with the mind's perspective, the focus has also its limits. Whenever we focus our attention on one certain matter, many other things very often get blurred out.



This is the main reason whenever something bad arises, you tend to put the blame on yourself for having bad luck, and questioning yourself why you did what you did to screw things up. This is also the very reason whenever something good befalls somebody else and not you, you tend to think that this other person is living an overall better life than you do. Just as how the focus of a person's eyes determines the objects he or she sees, the focus of your own emotional state will determine how you feel at any given point in time. Just as how the focus of a person's eyes determines the objects he or she sees, the focus of your own emotional state will determine how you feel at any given point in time.

As a matter of fact, however smooth sailing someone may seem to be living right now, there almost always lies a certain unhappiness beneath that fa├žade; and no matter how bad a state one person may be in right now, there certainly still lies some beautiful things we very often ignore in the heat of the moment. There are many positive, beautiful things that are surrounding us in our lives at all times; they haven't really been missing in our lives during these bad times, we just instinctively treat them as transparent and non-existent. 

There will be no shortage of negative things in Life but the more you avoid them, the more they will come back to haunt you. There will also be no shortage of the positive, and happy things in Life but the more you ignore them, the more they will not appear in front of you. The most important lesson in Life you ought to learn, is not to get busy getting upset by the bad things that have already been befallen on you, but to practice being happy with the good ones in Life.
